the injured, two u.s. air force reservists and one navy service member. earlier today, president obama spoke about the tragedy. >> my daughters go to the movies. what if malia and sasha had been at the theater as so many of our kids do every day. michelle and i will be fortunate enough to hug our girls a little tighter tonight and i'm sure you will do the same with your children, but for those parents who may not be so lucky, we have to embrace them and let them know we will be there for them as a nation. so again, i'm so grateful that all of you are here. i am so moved by your support, but there are going to be other days for politics. this i think is a day for prayer and reflection. >> joining me today, "time" magazine deputy washington bureau chief, michael crowley and patricia murphy, contributor to the daily beast. certainly a day of reflection. we are all still processing a lot as it comes to the details of this tragedy. michael, i want to talk about the president's comments, saying this isn't a day for politics, calling for us to -- it's a reminder of the fragility of life and calling
the gauntlet on the same day we're beefing up u.s. troop presence in the region. iran threatens to destroy u.s. military bases across the middle east and go after israel within minutes of being attacked. get ready, this legal holiday year things are getting hot and heavy over there. welcome, everybody, glad to have you. happy 4th. fox on top of iranian revolutionary guards test firing missiles into the air. they say they could easily reach every city in israel and every u.s. and military base in the region. the latest from jerusalem. >> it's a tense july 4th on a lot of u.s. military basis. in the past few hours a leader in iran's revolutionary guard saying in effect, watch out, you're in our sights. threatening and direct language about taking out u.s. military basis within minutes of an attack on iranian soil and also said his missiles were in range of any city in israel. in the past 24 hours, we've learned the united states has based a squadron, f22 stealth fighters capable of penetrating deep into iran for an attack. this as iran is spending three days launching their shahab 3 missiles in
aviv. he is visiting the key u.s. ally a place that obama has yet to visit since coming to the white house. i'm healther childers. >> i'm kelly wright. he is spending 36 hours in israel. including prime minister benjamin netanyahu. ahead of his trip he signed a bill reaffirming the united states commitment to israel and the administration announced additional defense funding for the jewish state. molly henneberg is live in washington, d.c. where she has been following all this. critics say the actions were timed to upstage governor's romney's visit. >> the white house says no to that. governor romney says he will not criticize president obama directly while he is overseas but romney has spoken previously while in the u.s. of obama's administration shabby treatment of israel. the israeli people deserve better than what they received from the leader of the free world. he is romney on the plane to israel today. israel is fearful of a nuclear attack by iran and governor romney will make the case he would be tougher with iran than president obama. he said in an interview with an israeli p
members, including russia, to join us in a serious resolution that gives special envoy kofi annan what he needs. >> more than 100 people were killed on thursday when a gasoline tanker crashed and exploded in nigeria's niger delta. many of the victims lost their lives as they try to scoop up the tanker's oil as a leak on the ground. an exhaustive independent probe has concluded top officials at penn state university -- including legendary football coach joe paterno -- covered up sexual molestation allegations against an assistant coach 14 years before they finally came to light. the seven-month investigation reveals paterno, school president graham spanier, and other school officials were aware former penn state assistant football coach jerry sandusky was accused of child molestation as early as 1998, or were only concerned with protecting the school's image. the report concludes that a "culture of reverence for the football program" at the school led to a cover-up that "failed to protect against a child sexual predator harming children for over a decade." sandusky was finally arrested las
. >> romney continues his counter-attack in a new ad out this morning which he uses obama's own words in the 2008 convention in denver against him. >> if you don't have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare voters. if you don't have a record to run on, then you're paying your opponent as someone people should run from. you make a big election about small things. >> now, when it comes to his own record, the president conceded he hasn't communicated his economic policies well enough but stopped short of saying he's made mistakes on substance. >> the mistake of my first couple of years was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right. and that's important. but the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the american people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times. >> now, romney pounced on this line saying being a good communicator is not enough, saying, quote, being president is not about telling stories. being president is about leading. so who is to blame for the sluggish economy? former presiden
now grant us into finer rights. those come from nature and god according to the declaration of independence. >> you know what? the real story is that a lot of this is being thrown back to the states and governors like louisiana's bobby jindal will have the ability to refuse it using whatever curious reasoning they can muster. >> states are different. founing fathers intended each state to be a laboratory of exper menation. the reality is if what works in massachusetts may not be appropriate to another state. >> really comparing mardi gras to -- >> yes, he really did. i'm join ed by sheila jackson lee, good afternoon, ma'am. >> it's a pleasure to be with you and for all americans, this is a special week for us. happy fourth of july. >> indeed. you have been an unwaivering advocate for children in texas. you're the co-chair of the congress congressional children's caucus. what is your reaction when you hear charles perry say he's completing opposed to the health care reform even though 22% of children in your state have no health insurance whatsoever? >> the reason i began thi
this round-robin of interviews, not just with us, but with other networks. wolf, it's interesting to note, he essentially said the same thing, gave the same answers to all of us in the course of all of these interviews. >> he said he would be a zone man as far as picking a vice presidential candidate. he didn't tell you who it would be. >> no, he didn't. and that's been his position so far in this campaign. that he's not going to talk about the vetting process. the vice presidential selection process. but i did ask him, because condoleezza rice's name did come up, whether or not he was concerned about being associated too much with the bush administration. as you know, earlier this week, he had that fund-raiser with dick cheney out in wyoming. it was interesting to note that mitt romney said in that interview that his administration would not be a carbon copy of anything in the past. a note there that he would like to get out that he would not be george w. bush, part ii. >> he was very strong on that specific point. good work, as usual. thanks so much, jim acosta, reporting. president obama a
, calling for us to -- it's a reminder of the fragility of life and calling for unity. what did you make of his comments? >> it's always a fine line because there are a lot of people who don't want to be hearing about politics, they don't want -- people want to be very careful about not exploiting a terrible tragedy like this. there is a pretty credible counterargument that says you don't turn it into a political fight where you're trying to get an advantage over your enemies and exploit it but i do think it's reasonable to have a national conversation about the context, about why these things happen, whether there are things we can do to prevent tragedies like this. if a plane crashes because you think the aircraft control system wasn't working, you would talk about how to reform it. but guns is such a volatile loaded subject, i think someone like obama and probably mitt romney are going to step back because they know that walking into that conversation immediately just turns into a distorted politicized -- >> mitt romney is expected to make remarks in the next few minutes. we'll bring
went up $2 to $64. the pass still costs less than all but one of the top ten u.s. cities with similar transportation systems. boston is the only city with a less expensive monthly pass at $59. leaders say the increases are part of a plan to keep fare and fee hikes small and predictable. >> last decade, our board made a decision to increase fares incrementally and not all at once in a large sum. this, we felt, would be an easier burden for our customers and those throughout the city. so this is something when he to do. you know, we want to make this as easy as possibility for our customers. >> the price for a regular one-time ticket is still $2. >>> and they're not the only agency raising fares. cal-train is increasing fairs by 25 cents. the move is meant to encourage customers to use electronic clipper passes, which are not facing a fare increase. if at least half of riders are using those by march, paper tickets will go up again by next july. b.a.r.t. is putting the last of its inflation increases into effect as well. >>> speaking of b.a.r.t., service was shut down for almost an hour
companies -- obamacare is a great handout to insurance companies to my perspective. you want to make us look like we're supporting the insurance companies. it was you all who went hand in hand with the insurance companies. you set it up so they couldn't lose. you made them regulate utilities. they're guaranteed a profit every year as a result of the individual mandate. it's the democrats who are helping the insurance companies and that point has not been made. you talk out of both sides of your mouths and that's a perfect example of what goes on in the book 1984. allowing them to do that, allowing them to create this regulated utility helps the insurance companies. then you say only they gain from the repeal. no mr. pallone. the american people gain from the repeal of this. we gain our freedom again. the difference between the liberals in in country and the conservatives is the issue of freedom. you and your colleagues want the government to control every aspect of our lives. we do not believe in that. we want this to continue to be the greatest country in the world and what makes us the gre
of a slur. that's not the name of the program. i know oftentimes as pundits, we use it loosely, but some people feel that's a negative term, even a pejorative term, and he was booed. he was actually applauded when he first came out. he got some other rounds of applause, because the -- and these are the very black leaders he claimed to have talked to on fox tonight. he brought about 20 black republicans with him into the room, and they kind of served as applauders for his applause lines. it was bizarre. i think a term you used was weird. he made several of the statements that were really strange. he even made other statements that many of us thought were disrespectful. for example, he talked about preserving traditional marriage, to an organization that most recently, this is the oldest civil rights organization in the country, most recently just endorsed marriage equality. he made a big pitch for charter schools to an organization where there's really no consensus about that. there are a lot of communities, especially in new york, the new york state conference and the naacp is dealing wi
for being with us tonight. have a good one. >>> what was the big surprise when mitt romney spoke to the naacp today? he only got booed three times. >> mitt romney dreams the impossible dream. >> mitt romney went in search of something he had not looked for before. >> if you want a president who will make things better in the african-american community, you are looking at him. >> the african-american vote. >> mission impossible. >> more than 90% of african-americans support the president. >> a high-stakes appearance for moim mitt romney today at the naacp. >> mitt romney and the naacp. >> i do love that music. i have to tell you. i do love listening to that organ music. >> romney just never connected to his audience. >> things went smoothly until he decided to take on the president's health care plan. >> i'm going to eliminate every nonessential expensive program i can find. >> the crowd shouted him down with boos. >> that includes obama care, and i'm going to work to reform and save -- [ audience booing ] >> he is the worst republican in the country. >> all of us saying that rick
romney started in bain in 1977. 25 years later, well, that takes us to 2002. according to mitt romney and his camp, the candidate didn't make any decisions for bain after 1999. he only benefitted financially from them. well, his campaign spokeswoman, ann degree yaw sall released this statement today. governor romney left bain capital in february of 1999 to run the olympics and had no input on investments or management of the companies after that point. another campaign aide told politico romney wasn't involved in any investment decisions. he was on the sec filings because he was still technically the owner, but just hadn't transferred owner ship to the other partners. well, history paints a very different picture. david corn of mother jones uncovered a february 1999 "boston herald" report about romney leaving for olympics. romney said he will stay on as part-timer with bain, providing input on investment and key personnel decisions. well, in july of 1999, romney was identified as the boss in a bain press release about the departure of two executives. bain capital ceow. -- willard, tha
investigator, aurora police chief daniel oates, is joining us this morning for his first interview since all of this happened. chief, thank you very much for taking the time to be with us. can you first clear up this story that originated overnight that investigators were looking for some so-called person of interest. what was that all about? >> sure. i'm not quite sure what the term "person of interest" means. we're interested in anyone who knew or had contact with the suspect, and this was a person who had contact with the suspect. suspect, eye casual acquaintance. we found him yesterday. we interviewed him. the relationship was real inconsequential. and we're happy that we spoke to him, but that's all that was. and as a responsible part of this investigation, we would be doing that with any of his acquaintances. so it's really an inconsequential matter. >> schieffer: as far as you know at this time, this involves only one person? >> all the evidence we have, every single indicator, is that this was-- this is all mr. holmes' activity and that he wasn't particularly aided by anyone else. >>
gergen is with us from cambridge, massachusetts. david, i don't believe it. i don't know. what do you think? if romney picked condoleezza rice would that not be a game changer? >> it sure would create a lot of buzz just as even the rumor has overnight. coming from matt drudge. you know, it's conventional wisdom within the political community that matt drudge has a direct line to one of mitt romney's top people matt rhodes who is very close in and drudge and rhodes are good friends. so all along drudge has had a pretty good take on it. when he came out and said conned -- condoleezza rice is at the top of the list everybody said wow. i thought this was off the table. look, i think it's more of a trial balloon than anything else. i'm in that camp. the romney people wanted to change the story and get away from bain and get on to other things. it's also true that they could stir things up and sort of put things up in the air and say, conservatives, are you willing to go with this or not? a lot of conservatives think condi rice is too close to george bush sr. and not enough of a foreign pol

, insert the following, section, none of the funds made available by this act may be used to operate or maintain a -- mr. frelinghuysen: i would like a copy of the amendment, please. reserve a point of order until we have a chance to look it over. the chair: the gentleman reserves a point of order. the gentleman from massachusetts is recognized for five minutes. mr. markey: i thank you. current nuclear arsenal has significant overkill that is built into it. our country continues to spend moran more taxpayer money on nuclear weapons. and even though the president and the senate have already agreed to reduce the number of deployed nuclear weapons. even though there is a growing bipartisan consensus that the united states has an excessive number of nuclear weapons and that the united states spends far more than it needs for a nuclear deterrence and defense. and that is why i rise today to offer my amendment to reduce the number of deployed intercontinental ballistic nuclear missiles from 450 to 300. i believe that this is the soundest approach to both our national security and our econo
is emphasizing the point these missiles can take out u.s. military basis within, quote, minutes. they have a range of 1250 miles. that puts about 100 to 120,000 u.s. service members in the bull's eye. that shown in yellow. in red, countries with u.s. bases, bahrain where the fifth fleet is based. also bases in afghanistan where there's a massive u.s. military presence as well as bases in kuwait. of course there's a map that includes any city in israel which gives iranians a lot of targets. the change in rhetoric but the iran'sance from threatening just israel to the united states. it gives the u.s. an excuse to buil up military tear forces and could take on iran if necessary and a lot of military fire power in the region come october when there's a joint israel-u.s. military tear joint training exercise. many say that exercise would be the perfect prelude for an attack on iran by the united states or israel or perhaps both. >> man, oh, man. thank you very much. u.s. ships moving in and now a senior pentagon official warning iran not to send fast boats out. if it does, the official says we'
information that could be used as evidence? and we're left with the lingering question and there's no good answer to this yet and that is why did he do that? the new york police commissioner ray kelly had reported that he had his hair painted red and said he was the joker and since then, there has been verification of that, that james holmes, the 24-year-old suspect, did indeed tell police he was the joker, but why is the outstanding question, ron. >> we've got 12 people dead, 71 reported wounded. is there any word as far as the wounded, how many of those 71 might be critically wounded? >> i just talked to some people who were at the hospital, the major hospital where the victims had been brought and they say they're being very closed mouthed. you can understand why and that is because a lot of the family members are trying to be contacted and so, we really don't know. we do know that some people have already been discharged, including a baby who was less than a year old who was inside the theatre, but as far as how many maybe seriously, maybe have life threatening injury, i haven't seen t
to today's weather and what looks like a beautiful day ahead. storm 4 meteorologist tom kierein joins us with the first forecast. after all that oppressive heat, tom, it feels nice out there. >> wonderful break. all the way into the weekend and this morning, as we go back in time, we've had just a few passing showers to our south and, actually, a little bit of thunder and lightning, too. lower part of the eastern shore and now that is much farther to the south of the metro area where just a few clouds floating through now and no storms around now and we only have a small chance later today. now, all those areas in orange are climbing into the 80s and areas in yellow, 70s and even a few places in green and highlands and west virginia and right around the metro area low and mid-80s and reagan national now at 85 and we're going to peak in the upper 80s maybe briefly near 90 in a few locations south of washington by mid to late afternoon and just, again, a slight chance of an isolated thunderstorm popping up and we'll have wind out of the southeast around five to ten miles per hour. yes, we'
real achievements in business, they show how he would try to run the country. they give us a look at what his tax policy would really be and what he believes in. mitt romney, i don't think, is making the case to the american people that he would be a president that americans can trust. it's all about the tax return. number one, i would like to know, how is he listed? general partner? president, owner? ceo? and then he signed it. i assume he signed his own tax return, even if he had somebody put it together, even if it's 500 pages. and the other thing is the business deductions. did mitt romney have any business deductions that dealt with bain capital? because if he did, he was flat-out lying to the american people when he said he had no n involvement. and maybe mitt romney has made the political calculation that it's just a heck of a lot safer and a hell of a lot easier to lie to the american people than it is to the internal revenue service. get your cell phones out, i want to know what you think. tonight's question -- this is a good one -- what will do more damage to mitt romney
. it's a shame. because our tax dollars were used to go to companies often donors of the president's. >> senator ron johnson is a republican from wisconsin, a member of the budget appropriations committee and also a supporter of mitt romney. thanks for talking with us. >> good morning, soledad. >> good morning, there's clearly an effort to move away from conversations about bain and taxes and start talking about crony capitalism. what exactly is that? >> well crony capitalism is taking taxpayer money and funneling that to the people that have supported you in the campaign and that's exactly what president obama and his administration has done. look at solyndra over a half billion dollars invested in a company that's now bankrupt. it was supported by people who supported president obama. that's a dlasic example. >> inserting solyndra back into the conversation. back in may of 2012, here's what mitt romney said about solyndra. listen. >> an independent inspector general looked at this investment and concluded that the administration had steered money to friends and family to campaign
hours. thanks for joining us this morning. >> we have a lot of items to talk about, the big story, high- speed rail. i understand you spoke with a labor leader about the impact >> that's right, we will hear from jerry hill, a fervent supporter of rail project. >> he will be talking about changing the law in california that could change the amount of parents that a child can have. first, another warning for beachgoers this morning after a shark attack in santa cruz county. >> a great white shark took a bite out of a fremont man kayak and left us knowing how dangerous waters can be. he was fishing a popular spot called pleasure point off of capitola. with the shark measured between 14-18 ft. long according to experts. it cost the voters out of the kayak while it was fishing and then he bit leaving a tooth behind. luckily the fisherman was not injured. other local fisherman say it is a reminder that in these waters, we are on the sharks turf >> we know they're out there and it is awesome to see they are in there looking for food and they just it mistook a kayaker for something he eat >> th
"the new york times" about today's penn state disgrace. good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. it seems like only yesterday when mitt romney was on fox news talking about the political philosophy of responding to attacks. >> i, of course, respond to the attacks. but they say in politics if you're responding you're losing. >> romney and his campaign had a lot of responding too today. "the boston globe" expanded on the recording, only to find out that mitt romney was the top dog at bain capital three years after he said he left. according to the report, a massachusetts financial disclosure form romney filed in 2003 clearly stated he owned 100% of bain capital in 2002. and his state financial disclosures indicate he earned $200,000 as a bain executive in 2001 and 2002. the report also drops this bombshell, a romney campaign official who requested anonymity to discuss the sec filings acknowledged that they do not square with common sense. until now, romney laz protected himself politically from any bain business practices after he left the company. romney always says
winds that are bringing some of that rain here to us and probably will for much of the day? >> yeah, that on-shore flow is what kept us so damp yesterday and kept our temperatures down and kept the clouds in and we saw some pretty heavy rain across the area. fortunately, this is going to start to break apart. while we are starting off with that pattern once again, we're hoping to dry out. again, it's the afternoon. yesterday, high temperatures barely made it into the upper 60's and low 70's and with that very moist low coming off the northeast. today we're starting off in the 60's once again but expected to move into the mid 80's this afternoon. fog and drizzle to start off the day. if i'm optimistic, afternoon sunshine, a few breaks for it. you spend most of the day under the cloud cover. at least we're starting to warm things up. this is all great news to get all this rain helping us bring us out of the drought. details on that when we come back in the seven-day forecast. >> our big story this morning, as police and federal agents continue their investigation in aurora, colorado,
